The weather has a significant impact on the thermodynamics of every building – changing the length of time it takes to heat up or cool down; the amount of heat or cooling lost through walls, windows and cracks; and the amount of energy required to keep occupants comfortable. For example, the amount of energy an air conditioning unit uses to cool a building varies with outside air temperature—the hotter it is outside, the harder the air conditioner has to work to keep the building cool.
Temperature, humidity, wind and heat from the sun are the next largest factors in determining how much you pay to keep your home comfortable.
